today that lori brook, the president of the c.h.a., was quoted in the "examiner" as saying that c. chmplet a. was not against the project, they were just against the city making a precedent of changing zoning rules. i was heartened to see that, and that gives us a way to move forward and accept the project in the area. although it's a little different in the c.h.a.-cal hollow association's letter written by their attorney, which follows a different tact and brings up numerous issues outside of that, among them being issues of crime. he brings up anecdotal evidence of crime at 864 ellis. i actually went on crime stat website and over the last six months at that location, there were 283 crimes reported. if you move two blocks over to 564, or three blocks over to 554 ellis, you actually have 564 crimes. there's actually less crime. if you go to 3155 scott, you have 66 crimes in that same time period. obviously a great place for these youth to be. the letter addresses economic costs of the project. in fact, the increased density is what we need to keep the costs down of this project.
